4 terrorists gunned down at Karachi stock exchange
It was early morning when the news of an attack was seen and heard, it brought back many old memories, the same horror, terror which we felt years ago.
Four gunmen attacked the Karachi Stock Exchange building on 29th Jun 2020. Experts thinks that this attack was rather personal than just a terrorist attack. The attackers were raw agents sent to give a lesson to Chine by India.
The attackers arrived in a car at the stock exchange gates at about 10am on Monday armed with rifles, explosives and hand grenades. And began firing shots and hurling explosives at the security guards at the entrance.
The building is in a high-security zone and situates the Pakistan state bank and the headquarters of national and international financial institutions.
China hold a 40% equity in the Pakistan stock exchange through the Shanghai stock exchange. India-China cold war has been going for some time now. This has been the greatest retaliation ever since.
Rizwan Ahmend, a police officer at the scene, said food supplies and hand grenades were found on the bodies of the gunmen, indicating they may have planned a long siege. A bomb disposal squad swept the building for any explosives.
Thanks to our trained law enforcement squad gunmen were taken down with in eight minutes. A dozen hand grenades, boxes of ammunition and several automatic rifle on the crime scene of the stock exchange attack. But their plan was badly interrupted by our brave soldier who demeaned those ill-willed persons with minutes and saved Pakistan from another tragedy.
It is reported that around 6000 people work from that very building. And if they succeed in entering that building God knows what catastrophe would have been brought upon us. Constable Rafeeq Sumro and Constable Khalil Jataoi were very brave and present minded in responding to those terrorists. Salute to them! 1 precious life has been lost and one is severely injured. We pray for his speedy recovery. Ameen.
